All The Food and Water We Need

Exodus 22-24

As some of you know, I have struggled with my health for the past 10 years. Tachycardia. Bradycardia. High blood pressure. Low blood pressure. Brain fog then clarity. I’ve been bouncing through life’s uncertainties like a ping-pong ball ricocheting off wooden paddles. When you’re living the rollercoaster, it’s hard not wondering where your next breath is going to come from, sometimes literally. Maybe that’s why I found comfort in these verses. God says in Exodus‬ ‭23‬:‭25‬-‭26‬ ‭NLT‬‬, ”You must serve only the Lord your God. If you do, I will bless you with food and water, and I will protect you from illness. …I will give you long, full lives.“

Being a Covid survivor, after almost dying of acute respiratory distress August 1, 2021, and completely changing my diet in order to breathe—ya’ll know fresh food ain’t cheap these days!!—I can say with certainty God provides all the food and water we need when we trust Him with the hard choices and inconveniences of doing what we know is right, including our eating habits. Not only did He make our bodies to heal, He wants us to be well and has provided a way for that to happen. Because of this, I will live to tell what the Lord has done! (Psalm 118:5,17)
